2 Reviews
These informative and inspiring biographies will give young readers a look at the lives of some of the world's most influential people in history. Each over 100 pages, the books are also ideal for reports. Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Bronte were extraordinary not only because they were successful female writers in Victorian England, but also because they were sisters. Growing up, all three sisters' writing was significantly influenced by their family members. This fascinating account of each sister's unconventional life, astounding talent, and tragic death draws readers into the minds of the gifted authors, With such classics as Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, and Agnes Grey, their voices still resonate today.

Had read a novel this summer about the Brontes then Daphne (see later review) so I needed a quick biography to settle some questions I had. This fit the bill. Designed for the YA audience so readable in a couple of hours. Read full review
